23 Oct Day 05 WWO Cycling Team’s Arrival in Paris, France
August 5th, 2017 – Day 05 of a 26 day, 11 flight and 4 country adventure, Capturing Grace in France, Ukraine, Russia and Spain.
Last night we stayed in the quaint village of La Borde, Chattillon -la-Borde & Soignies-en-Brie. Waking to the sounds of church bells, I enjoyed my morning coffee while walking the grounds of a castle, complete with mote.
We rolled into Paris, France today. Everywhere we went people asked Gennadiy about his boys. The opportunity this pastor has to promote adoption is remarkable.
The boys experienced their first ever visit to the city of lights, enjoying croissants under the Eiffel Tower. Having grown up on the streets of Ukraine, abandoned and homeless, the contrast here is hard to fathom. God has used pastor Gennadiy in a powerful way to change lives in the name of Jesus, encouraging all those he encounters to consider adoption and embrace his passion for a world without orphans.
